Michael Wessel has developed the Talker/80, a new Voice Syhtesizer for the Model I, III, and 4. It has natural sounding speak (like Alexa), requires no machine language driver, and has an E/I passthrough so it will work with a E/I, FreHD, and Quinterface.

The Talker/80 emulates the TRS-80 Voice Synthesizer and the VS-100.

The Talker/80 is open source under the GPL3 License and is maker-friendly (no surface mount soldering and easy to acquire parts). See:
